Really good at setting up MS Exchange Server?

We're thinking about ditching our hosted Exchange server and bringing it in house. Anyone done this (you personally) and would be willing to give some advice to a small business owner?

Please drop me an email, [email protected]

Thanks
Ron

More details:

How many users?
IT people on site?
Current cost for hosted service?
Reason you want to bring it in house?
Version of exchange?


Also, Shadrach does the consulting gig now, you might want to contact him, he probably has company supplied ROI calculators for just such a query from his clients, but he may have to charge you, and I dont know his current situation regarding side work off company time. Some of those IT Consulting firms are very stickly about that.

Also:

Do you already have a 2000 or 2003 MS network at your site?


MODS: May want to move this to the Geek Squad forum.

I may be way off base here, but I would send your internal guy to an MS training site and have him learn it. Then, bring it in house. If you pay someone to set it up, using the forms etc, you will find yourself wanting more and more custom forms set up as time passes and you start to realize the potential uses, could get very costly if the guy is in there all the time tweaking it for more functionality.

+1. If you're going to bring it in house do it the right way.
